SUNNYSIDE 



Washington, is south of 



eight miles north of Mabton, on the N. P. 
Railroad. It is the center of the largest 
tract of irrigated land in the great north- 
west. It has a healthful, mild climate, with 
scarcely any zero weather, and no sun 
strokes, cyclones, hail storms or blizzards. 
It is adapted to general farming and fruit. 
Sunnyside has no saloons, but it has a new 
High School building and eleven teachers, 
large church and Sunday-school attendance. 
It leads every other place in the State for 
its high moral, religious and intellectual 
standing. Wages are high and help scarce. 
Good farms can be rented in fall and win- 
ter. Improved and unimproved lands can 
be had at all times at such prices as will 
make the owner ten per cent per annum on 
his investment. Money can be loaned on 
gilt-edge real-estate security at six or sev- 
en per cent per annum. The Brethren have 
a good churchhouse, able ministers and a 
splendid opportunity for growth. Corre- 
spondence invited. S. J. HARRISON.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



A Permanent 
Cure for Piles 



We have treated Brethren from all over 
the United States during the past 27 years 
of our successful practice as rectal special- 
ists, and in the Brethren Almanac have 
always carried an announcement of our 
proposition, which is to accept no money 
until the patient is satisfied a cure has been 
effected. The Brethren Publishing House 
would not continue to publish these an- 
nouncements if they were not positive our 
institution was a reliable one in every 
respect and that we absolutely accept no 
money till cured. Treating the number of 
Brethren we do every year, the Almanac 
publishers would certainly receive com- 
plaints, if we did not carry out in every 
respect the promises made in our advertise- 
ment. We treat piles, fistula, and 
diseases of the rectum, and accept no 
money till the patient is cured. We 
tell upon examina- 
tion what the cost 
will be for a cure 
and the length of 
time required, but 
our examinations 
are always free and 
the patient is not 
urged to remain if 
these conditions 
are not satisfac- 
tory. Write to-day 
for a 252-page illus- 
trated treatise on 
diseases of the 
rectum, containing 
also hundreds of 
letters from prom- 
inen t people 
throughout the 
country whom we 
have cured. We 
also send the ladies a ic8-page treatise 
containing letters from ladies only, and 
urge all those who may be afflicted to in- 
vestigate fully the letters and information 
contained in these free books.

Gentlemen — In the hope that I may aid 
in pointing to afflicted humanity a relief 
from their suffering, 1 cheerfully and un- 
solicited break a rule of many years' stand- 
ing and write a testimonial. It is to the 
skill and integrity of Dr. Minor and his 
associates. 

For several years I had been troubled 
occasionally, and during the last four years 
incessantly, with hemorrhoids. I con- 
sulted three physicians and most 
carefully followed for weeks their pre- 
scriptions. Finally 
I was informed that 
the case was of too 
long standing to 
yield to the astrin- 
gent treatment, and 
that a sure and per- 
manent cure could 
be effected only by 
subjecting myself 
to a surgical opera- 
tion under the in- 
fluence of an anaes- 
thetic. To this I 
had serious ^objec- 
tions. 

Two months ago 
your advertisement 
attracted my atten- 
tion and I imme- 
diately called. 
After an examina- 
tion you assured me that a cure could be 
brought about, and stated the length of 
time that it would consume. 

1 entered upon the course of treatment 
and am happy to say that every promise 
you made was kept to the letter, and that 
at no time did I suffer any greater pain or 
discomfort than I had endured hundreds 
of times during the progress of the disease. 
At the present time I feel perfectly well, 
and I have your assurance that I shall 
never again be similarly troubled— an 
assurance that my experience with you 
makes doubly sure. 

Wishing you a continuance of your well- 
merited success, I am, 

Very gratefully yours,

HE'S NOT THE MAN. 

"He'B not the man he used to be. I should hardly have known him, he has fallen 
away so much." What a lesson in those words, and yet we hear them nearly every day! 
Not really sick, but ailing— losing flesh, dispirited, melancholy. There are many in just 
that condition. A word of encouragement and a little timely advice to commence treat- 
ment with Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer will quickly change the aspect. Mr. George Adolph, 
Burlingame, Kans., says: "Everyone in town knew my condition. Words cannot telj to9 
good your Blood Vitalizer did me." 



BRETHkEjSi FAMILY ALMANAC. 




THE BRETHREN CHURCH, ELGIN. 



When the Brethren located the Pub- 
lishing House in Elgin in 1899, there 
were no members in the city. Our first 
services were held in the homes of 
members, and then were moved into one 
of the rooms in the Publishing House. 
In the meantime we cast about for a 
church, either to purchase a lot and build, 
or purchase one already built. 

On Highland Avenue, in the immedi- 
ate vicinity of where a number of mem- 
bers had procured homes, there happen- 
ed to be a well constructed and partly 
unfinished church owned by the Dis- 
ciples. This building was purchased and 
finished by the Elgin congregation, and 
now we have a neat, commodious and 
conveniently located house of worship. 

In the building we have a large, well 
seated auditorium and also a number of 
side rooms for Sunday school and prayer 
meeting purposes, with an excellent base- 
ment. The house is heated by hot air 



and lighted by electricity. The accom- 
panying cut shows the building as it ap- 
peared when purchased from the Dis- 
ciples. We have not found it necessary 
to make any changes whatever on the 
outside. 

The edifice is on the Highland street 
car line, and can be easily reached from 
any part of the city. At this time there 
are about fifty members residing within 
ten minutes' walk of the house, five of 
them being ministers and five deacons. 
Our church is charmingly located, and in 
the course of a few years we expect to 
see a large body of members residing 
on the west side of the city where our 
people are settling and building up pleas- 
ant and desirable homes. We could not 
ask for better church and Sunday-school 
privileges, but as time goes by we hope 
to grow stronger, and be able to reach 
every part of Elgin and the surrounding 
community with our whole gospel plea.

Well Preserved Men and Women. 

We find some remarkably weU preserved 
men and women who are sixty, seventy and 
even eighty, years old, but the great major- 
ity show the effect of early struggles, hard 
work and privations long before they reach 
that age. They need a mild, invigorating 
remedy to help nature restore the failing 
functions. Such a remedy is Dr. Peter's 
Blood Vitalizer.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC, 



TWO VIEWS OF LIFE. 



BY WILBUR B. STOVER. 



Many a young man enters life with the 
idea that the world owes him a living, 
and that it shall be his business from 
now on to get back what is owing to 
him. All the common newspapers and 
almanacs are full of advertisements how 
to make money, and how to get rich, and 
how to get a big return for a small 
investment. Even good schools some- 
times offer shortest courses and sure 
paying employ to follow! 

As a boy I remember that I used to 
think, sometimes, that if I could some- 
how manage to get a cent out of every- 
body's pocket, nobody would be any 
poorer, while I would be rich. But that 
was when I hadn't very much sense yet. 
That was when I thought that the world 
owed me a living, and the problem with 
me was how to get it. 

When a man's every energy goes to 
getting something out of life, he usually 
gets it. With ordinary intelligence one 
can usually get about what he wants in 
this world. It is rather a question of 
how much he really wants to acquire 
his object. How earnest he is in his 
desire to obtain, — this is the whole ques- 
tion. 

Having done all I could to get some- 
thing out of life, when all my days have 
been spent in the getting, then I may 
have actually acquired a very great deal. 
And I may be prominent, or I may be 
educated, or I may be rich. But what 
are these? If a man spends his whole 
life in getting something out of it, he 
will leave the world a poorer world, and 
he can take nothing with him. And if 
a man's behavior leaves the world poor- 
er, and himself none the better, I should 
count that life a failure. I do not know 
what other term to apply. 

From the beginning to the end he got. 
From his parents he got early care and 
attention. From his brothers and sisters 



he got his child lessons. From the doc- 
tor he got his medicine. From his teach- 
ers he got his education. From his 
preacher he got ethical teaching. From 
his employers he got his wages. From 
those who dealt with him he got the 
best of the bargain! From the stand- 
point of the business world that life 
would be called a success. 

But I have come to believe the basis 
of such calculation is wrong. The prem- 
ise is wrong. The conclusion is wrong. 
The ethics is wrong. The first thing a 
man does after coming into this world 
is to get into debt to his parents. What 
is he ever able to return to them for 
their watchfulness and care over him 
during the utter helplessness of his in- 
fant years? They clothe him, and nurse 
him, and feed him, and school him. He 
can give nothing back to them as an 
adequate return. He gets his religious 
teaching from the home circle, from the 
Sunday-school teachers, and from the 
preachers. And he must go into debt 
for this, as he has nothing equivalent to 
pay. 

So when a boy is full grown, with 
twenty-one years of receiving-from-oth- 
ers as his experience, he has got the cart 
before the horse if he sets out with the 
idea that the world owes him anything! 
The fact is he is in debt to the world 
up to his ears! 

Setting out with the recognition of this 
debt, a conscientious man will feel like 
making strong efforts to pay off the in- 
debtedness. And so it comes to him that 
his view of life is different. He does not 
think the world owes him a living. He 
does not think to be getting something 
out of life as long as he lives. His 
thought is different. His endeavor is to 
pay back what he owes. His ideal lies 
hidden in a life of giving. His hope is 
that he should put something into the

IT DOES MY HEART GOOD. 

" It does my heart good to hear people, when they call for the Blood Vitalizer, speak so 
highly of the good it is doing," writes Mr. Frederick Dinse, 33 Bahrer Avenue, Cleveland, 
Ohio, one of the agents for the remedy in that city. 

In view of such comments, it is not to be wondered at that the agents for Dr. Peter's 
Blood Vitalizer are so enthusiastic in their work. It is also a source of much satisfaction 
to a manufacturer to know that he is placing before the public a remedy which is possessed 
9f positive merit.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



world. His happiness lies in making oth- 
er people happy. His education is that 
he owes the world a good life, and his 
intention is to pay it. He says to him- 
self, "I am debtor." 

Take this idea with the man into the 
walks of life, and it affects him all the 
way. When he meets another man, his 
thought is not what he can get out of 
him, but, " What good can I do for 
him?" When he goes to church, his 
thought is not what he can hope to get 
out of the services, but, " What good 
can I help to put into it?" As an em- 
ploye, his thought is not how much he 
can get out of his employer, but, ''How 
much can I do for him in the given 
time?" As an employer, his thought is 
■not what is the extreme limit to which 
the law will allow me to crush the 
under fellow down, but, " What can I af- 
ford to pay those in my employ, that 
they may have also the bounties of 
life?" 

This is a joyful life. It is a pleasure 
to see how the people all over town smile 
on the mail carrier. Because he gives 
to them daily. And there are few crusty 
old fellows for mail carriers. The same 
reason comes into account. The life of 
any one who gives to the good of others 
is the most joyful life available. But 
only those who live it know it. 

I do. not know Christ other than 
through this channel. But in this I love 
him and appreciate him. His big soul 
was all aglow when he saw some one 
to whom he could be of service. And 
this bei-ng of service to others is not 
confined to the miraculous. It was not 
so in his life. It is the little, everyday, 
thoughtful service that you can do, and 
I must do, if we would be like the 
Master, the blessed Master. 

What greater joy can man have in 
this world than to meet another who 
knows not the Truth, and who would 
like to know? What greater joy can one 
have than to know of the suffering of 
some one, to whom he can administer 
gratuitous and unexpected comfort? 
What greater sense of over-joy can one 
experience than to come in close touch 
with the Divine Life, living as the Di- 



vine Life lived? He went about doing 
good. This is the divine view of human 
life, that men should do men good, and 
not evil. This is the divine idea wrought 
out in man. That every man seek an- 
other's good. 
Bulsar, India. 




Now I lay me down to sleep, 

I pray thee. Lord, my soul to keep; 

If I should die before I wake, 

I pray thee, Lord, my soul to take. 



EDUCATION VS. MONEY, OR 
WHAT EDUCATION DOES. 



By H. M. Barwick. 

From different state reports we learn 
that sixty-seven per cent of the paupers 
and criminals in their county infirmaries. 
State reformatories and penitentiaries are 
either wholly illiterate or else received 
but little schooling, while only three 
per cent were high school graduates and 
college attendants. 

Some statistics also give the per cent 
who had been taught an industrial trade, 
while from other sources we learn the 
per cent that received a legacy of money 
from their parents, but neither of them 
anyway compared with education as a 
preventive of crime. This generation of 
greedy money-grabbers ought to consid- 
er such facts, and church people ought 
also to see that the best legacy for chil- 
dren is an education that prepares them 
for usefulness in society, because plenty 
of money for the child is not a- safe- 
guard against degenerating. 

Our schools and colleges should also 
be surrounded with moral and spiritual 
influences, for when we neglect our edu- 
cational factors we are neglecting our 
souls' interests.

The Road to a Happy Old Age. 

The road to a happy old age lies in care- 
ful and temperate living and in promptly- 
correcting those little irregularities which 
appear in the bodily functions. Of reme- 
dies to accomplish this there is probably no 
medicine that serves the purpose better 
than I>r. Peter's Blood Vitalizer.

Bristol — Where the Annual Meeting is to be Held. 

THE ANNUAL MEETING OF 1905. 



The Annual Meeting for this year will 
be held at Bristol, Tenn., commencing on 
Tuesday morning, June 13, The Stand- 
ing Committee will meet on Thursday, at 
8 A. M., June 8, and organize by elect- 
ing a moderator, reading clerk and writ- 
ing clerk. The retiring officers are H. 
C, Early, I. D. Parker and H. B. Brum- 
baugh. Each State district is entitled 
to one elder on the Standing Committee. 
Districts having thirty-five hundred or 
more members may send two elders as 
delegates. 

In the open conference each congrega- 
tion may be represented by one delegate, 



either from the laity or official body. 
Congregations having two hundred mem- 
bers have the privilege of sending two 
delegates to the open conference. Sis- 
ters may serve as delegates in the open 
conference, but not on the Standing 
Committee. Only regularly ordained 
elders or bishops can serve on this com- 
mittee. It requires a two-thirds vote of 
the delegates and Standing Committee to 
carry a question in the open conference. 
As usual, the people will commence 
gathering Friday and Saturday. As 
many as possible should reach Bristol by 
Saturday, so there need be no traveling 
on Sunday. Sunday is to be the big

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC, 



day at the conference. In the morning 
there will be Sunday-school work of 
some kind. This is to be followed by 
preaching. There will also be preach- 
ing in the afternoon and in the evening. 
For these services good speakers are 
selected. 

Monday is likely to be one of the 
most interesting days at the conference. 
The forenoon will be demoted to Sun- 
day-school work, and there is certain to 
be some most inspiring talking. This 
meeting will be in charge of the Gen- 
eral Sunday-school Committee. The 
Annual Meeting missionary meeting is 
to be held in the afternoon, where 
able addresses will be delivered, to be 
followed by the collection. As near as 
possible every congregation, as well as 
every member in the Brotherhood, 
should have a part in this collection. 
During the forepart of the week other 
meetings, in addition to the open con- 
ference, will be held, and in due time a 
program of these services will be pub- 
lished. 



Bristol, where the meeting is to be 
held, is on the state line, separating 
Tennessee and Virginia. The meeting 
will be held on the Tennessee side. The 
city has a population of about fifteen 
thousand and possesses good railroad fa- 
cilities. The citizens of Bristol are much 
interested in the Annual Conference, and 
are preparing to give our people a regu- 
lar Southern reception. 

We hope to see a good representation 
from every part of the Brotherhood. 
In the spring a number of announce- 
ments concerning this meeting will be 
published in the Gospel Messenger. 
The different railroads will give reduced 
rates. But all of this in detail will be 
made known through the Messenger. 

The picture at the head of this article 
represents one of the business streets of 
Bristol. The city is an enterprising 
place, is located in a fine part of the 
great South and is favored with some 
charming scenery. Some of our people 
are likely to fall in love with this sec- 
tion of the country. 



HOW SHE WAS REWARDED, 



Not all tramps are poor, and now and 
then they abundantly reward those who 
show them kindness. Of a lady in Oma- 
ha, Nebr., it is said that one day last 
winter a man, ragged and weather-beat- 
en, came to her door, begging shelter 
for the night. He had applied at the 
hotels of the city, but none of them 
would receive so miserable-looking a 
creature as a guest. Her heart went out 
to him in pity, for he was homeless in a 
heavy snow-storm, and he looked tired 
and cold and sick. Eventually, at some 
inconvenience, room was found for him 
for the night. The next day he was too 
ill to rise, so a doctor was sent for, and 
his hostess nursed him. As the case 



grew more serious the man became fear- 
ful that he was going to die. One day 
while his hostess was alone with him he 
asked for his old coat, and when it was 
handed to him he took from beneath the 
lining a greasy package, wrapped in a 
newspaper. This he gave to his kind 
friend, with the remark that if he re- 
covered he would like to have it again, 
but if he died he wished her to keep it. 
His fears were justified, for in a week 
afterwards he was dead. Then the pack- 
age was opened, and in it was a thousand 
dollars, apparently the savings of his life. 
It is not often that benevolence is so 
highly rewarded in this life, but we are 
assured that it never misses its reward 
in the next life.

A CAREWORN FACE. 

A careworn face, pale and haggard, is sure to leave its impress on our minds. If it is 
the face of some loved one, mother, wife or child, our heart is filled with sadness. Such 
faces will haunt us in our sleep and are present to our minds in our waking hours. It is 
human to be solicitous for those we love. Possibly while reading this, you see before you 
a loved face, thin and blanched, tortured by disease. W^hat would you think if an invest- 
ment in a couple of bottles of Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer should change the picture to one 
of joy and health? C. Kroon, Duncansby, Miss., says: "We are highly satisfied with the 
Blood Vitalizer. It has made our children healthy and rosy cheeked."

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



OUR MEETINGHOUSES. 



All over the Brotherhood we are build- 
ing new churches, and in some instances 
the old churches are being remodeled. 
Some of the old churches are removed, 
and others take their place. 

The first temple on Mount Moriah, 
after serving its purpose for generations, 
was destroyed, and in course of time the 
second temple was built. While the new 
temple was modeled after the former, it 
was not as large or as grand as Solo- 
mon's temple. Herod remodeled the 
second temple, greatly enlarged the 
structure and did much to enhance its 
appearance. 

God approves of these necessary 
changes in temples, though he may not 
have approved of Herod's waste of 
money in embellishing the house of God. 
The same in principle may be true to- 
day. It is all right for us to tear down 
old meetinghouses, when necessary, and 
build new ones; it is proper for us to 
remodel our churches and make them 
more convenient; it is also pleasing to 
the Lord for us to build new churches 
after the most improved plans for his 
services; but he does not want us to 
make an extravagant use of money. He 
certainly does not want his people to 
waste money on steeples and other 
things merely to please the eye and make 
a display. 

We claim to be a plain people, and we 
ought to have plain meetinghouses. But 
this does not mean that we are to dis- 
pense with neatness, convenience, dura- 
bility and taste. A congregation can 
build a plain house and at the same 
time have every church convenience 
knovv^n. Where it can be done our 
church buildings should be provided with 
the different rooms necessary for preach- 
ing, prayer meeting and Sunday school. 
While this may render some departure 
in architecture necessary, it does not in 
any sense justify the extravagant use of 
money on the house of God. 



The conveniences of a church should 
be made a special study, for a congre- 
gation ought to be able to make a wise 
use of every part of the house dedicat- 
ed to God's services. Special atten- 
tion should be given to the audience 
room. It should be neat, well propor- 
tioned, well lighted, properly seated, well 
heated and arranged for good ventila- 
tion. Then it ought to be so planned 
that the speaker from the stand may be 
heard in every part of the room. Neat- 
ness and taste on the inside of a build- 
ing does not necessarily mean pride, ex- 
travagance and display. It ought to 
mean good common sense. 

The future of the church depends upon 
what we accomplish in the Sunday 
school; hence the importance of so ar- 
ranging the rooms, provided for that pur- 
pose, as to do the very best work pos- 
sible. These rooms cannot be had in 
most of the old churches, but they should 
be kept in view when erecting new meet- 
inghouses. 

Then the location of the church in a 
community is of great importance. 
Never build a meetinghouse to one side 
of a town or village. Select the very 
best place possible near the center, on 
a good street, where there is plenty of 
light. In the past some of our people 
have made mistakes by building their 
house of worship at the edge of a town 
or village, or a short distance out from 
the town. We should never make any 
more mistakes of this kind. If we want 
to reach the people we must build our 
churches where the people can reach 
them with as little inconvenience as pos- 
sible. 

COMMON TATURS. 



An English vicar was standing on a 
Monday morning at his gate, when one 
of his parishioners arrived with a basket 
of potatoes. "What's this?" asked he. 
" It's some of our very best taturs, sr'r. 
My wife said you should have some of 
them, as she heard you say in the sermon 
that common taturs (commentators) 
didn't agree with you."

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC, 




Brethren Church, Waynesboro, Pa. 

ANTIETAM CONGREGATION, PA. 



BY J. F. MILLER. 



This is one of the oldest congrega- 
tions, if not the oldest, of the Brethren 
west of the Susquehanna river. It was 
organized in 1750 by Eld. Abram Stouf- 
fer, who was ordained to the eldership 
by Bishop Peter Becker, of near Phila- 
delphia. The region at that time was in- 
fested with hostile tribes of Indians. 
The French and Indian war a few years 
later increased the uneasiness felt by the 
members, and the work was hindered 
and the growth of the church retarded 
during most of the latter half of the 
eighteenth centdry. Worship was con- 
ducted in dwelling houses in the winter 
and in barns during the summer. Eld. 
Stouffer remained with the congregation 
several years and then returned to east- 
ern Pennsylvania, and Eld. George Adam 
Martin was left in charge of the work. 

The first resident bishop was Eld. Wm. 
Stover, who emigrated from Switzerland 
and who was elected to the ministry and 
ordained to the eldership while Eld 



19 



Martin had charge of the work. Eld. 
Stover was the great-great-grandfather 
of Bro. Wilbur B. Stover, missionary to 
India. 

The original territory of the Antietam 
congregation was very large, comprising 
what are now known as the Manor and 
the Beaver Creek in Maryland and Welsh 
Run, Back Creek, Ridge and Falling 
Spring congregations in Pennsylvania. 

The first church building was erected 
in 1795 in Price's Grove, near Waynes- 
boro. Another was erected in 1836 at 
Welty's. Preaching services are still 
held at these two places as well as at 
four other points in the congregation. 

The new Waynesboro church shown 
by the picture was dedicated Oct. 2, 1904. 
It was built on the site of the old Union 
church erected in 1830 and which the 
Antietam congregation purchased in 1870. 
The new church is one of the largest and 
most substantial in Waynesboro. It has 
a frontage of 101 feet and a depth of

Gloomy People. 

There are some people in this world who 
are gloomy, morose and pessimistic by na- 
ture, others are so because their blood and 
livers are out of order. If you have a 
friend who is continually crusty — maybe 
you are so yourself — g-et him to use Dr. 
Peter's Blood Vitalizer, and see how quick- 
ly things will brighten. 



20 



What Is Needed. 

You don't have to be actually sick before 
needing a blood cleanser. The best of us 
need an occasional toning up. There is 
probably no remedy in existence which ex- 
erts such a beneficial effect on the system 
as Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer — made of 
pure, health-giving roots and herbs. 
Thousands have testified to its merits. 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



68 feet. It is built of brick, trimmed 
with light stone. It has a Sunday-school 
room which is separated from the main 
auditorium by rolling partitions. When 
thrown into one room the seating ca- 
pacity, including the gallery, is about 
1,100. The building is well ventilated. 
It is heated by hot air furnaces and is 
lighted by electricity. 

Of the 560 members of the Antietam 
congregation about three hundred reside 
in Waynesboro (fifty years ago there 
were but four members in town). 

The congregation supports two mis- 
sionaries in India and two orphans are 
maintained there by the Sisters' Mission- 
ary Circle of Waynesboro. The Sisters' 
Circle was organized in 1895. 

The Waynesboro church also has a 



missionary association which was or- 
ganized in 1893. Our Missionary Read- 
ing Circle, which is now located at Cov- 
ington, Ohio, was organized here at one 
of the association meetings. 

The first Sunday school in Waynes- 
boro was organized in 1878, with Bro. 
J. F. Oiler as superintendent. 

The following have served in the elder- 
ship: Wm. Stover, Daniel Stover, Jacob 
Holsinger, Jacob Fahrney, Wm. Boyer, 
Jacob Price, Jos. F. Rohrer, Jacob F. 
Oiler, Jacob Snider. The present elders 
are D. M. Baker, J. B. Ruthrauff. The 
other ministers are C. R. Oellig, H. M. 
Stover, F. D. Anthony and Isaac Rid- 
dlesberger. 

Four annual meetings have been held 
in the congregation; in 1810, 1829, 1847 
and 1866 respectively. 



PRENATAL INFLUENCE. 



BY NANCY D. UNDERHILL. 



The young wife and expectant mother 
is carefully advised by the older ones 
" not to reach," " not to scream if she be- 
comes frightened," and if her adviser is, 
fortunately, a wise woman, she is also 
instructed to avoid looking upon de- 
formity or anything hideous. Some- 
times one cannot help becoming fright- 
ened to some extent, but every expectant 
mother must carefully avoid giving way 
to or being overcome by fright. She 
must control her emotions, not let them 
control her. But we should train our 
children to exercise self-control while 
they are yet little. This can be done, 
and the child can so train himself, if he 
will. This is a most valuable lesson all 
through life. The loss of self-control in 
the expectant mother results seriously 
upon the character of her child. For this 
reason the father should very carefully 
guard and shield his wife against exces- 
sive grief, sorrow or fear, and should 



seek to make her life a happy one, es- 
pecially during this trying time. 

A family were once riding in a steam- 
boat, when one child fell overboard. The 
mother screamed and failed to control 
her emotion. Some time later a foolish 
son was born. This son was a natural 
mechanic,' and more than usually gifted 
in other ways; but his mind was a wreck 
because of that loss of control over the 
parent mind . 

But fright is not the only thing against 
which we must guard. Excessive grief 
or sorrow may bring as sad results, while 
anger is even worse. Many a criminal 
in prison garb is but the result of an 
angry disposition upon the part of an 
unwilling mother. When a parent seeks 
to destroy the embryotic life, can he ex- 
pect this murderous disposition will have 
no effect upon the offspring? What we 
want our children to be, the parents 
must determine by their own disposition

A Word to Mothers. 

Mothers, make confidants of your daugh- 
ters. Teach them to come to you with 
their troubles, physical as well as mental. 
There Is a period in every girl's physical 
development which requires watchful care. 
Every irregularity should be promptly cor- 
rected. Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer exerts 
a most beneficial influence on woman's deli- 
cate organism.

Thousands of People. 

There are thousands of people who pass 
year after year without a really well day. 
They are never bed-ridden, but they have 
a constant feeling of weariness and weak- 
ness which unfits them for work and pleas- 
ure. Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer is just 
what such people need. It makes live blood 
and makes it circulate and nourish the vital 
organs. It invigorates and strengthens the 
entire system.

and conduct. If we want them to be 
great and good, our own characters must 
be above reproach. We must be men 
and women of prayer, because we cannot 
be pure and good and noble in our own 
strength. Our thoughts are incorporat- 
ed in our children's characters. A cer- 
tain mother who had asked a son of 
God decided that this child must be like 
one who had in years long past seemed 
to her the embodiment of manly char- 
acter and beauty. But how attain this 
ideal? Not even a small photograph of 
the features could be obtained. So she 
decided that her mind should dwell con- 
stantly upon her ideal. Every morning 
she would, upon waking, look upon a 
picture in memory's album of the one 
noble character. She asked God to make 
her son like that one who years ago 
had been so strong and brave and kind. 
(She never doubted that it would be a 
son.) In due time a son was born: 
strong, healthy, more robust than any of 
her other children. Whom did he favor? 
Not one of his relatives. He was not a 
pretty child. Strong lines of character 
marked his features from the first. As 
time advanced this child became one 
honored and trusted by all his teachers, 
schoolm.ates and neighbors, because of 
his strength of character. When called 
as a witness in a case where the man on 
trial was one much disliked, one who 
had many times erred, and against whom 
prejudice was strong, this boy testified 
that although the man was in the habit 
of domineering over others, and was of 
a quarrelsome disposition, and though he 
himself had never liked the man, and 
had suffered somewhat at his hands, yet 
the man was entirely innocent in this 
case, having acted only in self-defense. 
And the boy's testimony won the case 
against more than a score of other wit- 
nesses, and much prejudice, because he 
was known to be honest and truthful. 
When the proper time comes, a man of 
power for good will be recognized in 
this youth, and only the mother will 
know whom he " takes after." 



A poor family was united after years 
of separation and hardship. The wife 
was so happy to be again mistress of her 
own home. Her husband was so kind 
and considerate, how could she help be- 
ing glad? And her health was so well 
cared for, she never had felt so well and 
happy before. She said aftetward, " I 
just felt as though I could tear a house 
down and build it up again; I felt so 
strong and well, and so happy." A 
daughter was born. Nothing remark- 
able(?), that daughter became one of 
the most cheerful, brave and helpful of 
woinanly characters in times of great ad- 
versity. A support to the poor and af- 
flicted, a comfort to the sorrowing, a 
bright angel of hope to the tried and 
tempted and fallen. Her personal influ- 
ence would bring health into 4:he sick 
room, and her own private life was one 
of victorious struggle against great ob- 
stacles. 

Mothers^ look at the beautiful things 
around you. Do not let your mind dwell 
upon the unpleasant experiences of life. 
If compelled to dwell continually with 
the unbeautiful, the unlovely, the vile and 
disagreeable, do not let your mind retain 
the impressions made by these things. 
Turn your thoughts resolutely away to 
some lovely picture, even if it be only a 
picture of fancy, painted in the aircastles 
of imagination. Think of things that are 
pure and beautiful and good; and your 
child will be as you have governed your 
thoughts. It is said that Robert Inger- 
soll's mother read books of skepticism 
and infidelity before his birth. She 
thought that her own mind was strong 
enough to bear it. But what of the em- 
bryotic mind? If possible, read good 
books, the lives of noble characters. 
Seek pleasant and noble companionship, 
look at things that are beautiful. See 
the beauty in nature, and refuse to look 
upon or think of the unlovely. But if 
the desirable literature, society and sur- 
roundings canhot be, we can at least 
have pictures of them in our minds — in 
our thoughts. Philpp. 4: 8.

You Are the Best Judge. 

You are the best judge of your own feel- 
ings. The doctor looks for symptoms, and 
having found them, follows certain pre- 
cepts, but the rest is largely guesswork. 
Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer acts on one prin- 
ciple, as old as life itself. It strikes at 
the root of the disease — the impurity in 
the blood. No guesswork about that.

A Different Disease. 

A different disease every week is felt by 
those whose stomach, blood or liver is out 
of order. They never enjoy life long at a 
time, for they suffer with every ailment 
that is going. The vitality is so low that 
the system cannot resist disease. The sys- 
tem can be quickly fortified by the use of 
Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer. 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 




Abilene Church, Kansas. 



A HISTORY OF THE ABILENE CHURCH, KANSAS. 



BY T. H. DAVIS. 



What is known as the Abilene church, 
Kansas, was partly organized in 1869 at 
Bro. John Humberger's. In 1858 John 
Humberger moved from Iowa to Pipe 
Creek, four miles west of where Minne- 
apolis, Kans., now stands, and took up 
a claim. Here the Indians became too 
hostile, and he moved to Abilene (the 
city of the plains), Kans., and lived in a 
corncrib and built a log cabin, 12x14 
feet, along the Kaw river, two miles 
from Abilene. In 1867 Jonas Dehaven 
moved here, he being a minister in the 
second degree and the first one of the 
Brethren ministers in this part of the 
country. 

In 1869 Bro. John Humberger was 
elected to the ministry, and the first 
love feast was held in his house. The 
following seven members were living 
here at the time the church was organ- 



ized: John Humberger and wife, Jonas 
Dehaven and wife, Christian Mast and 
wife, Christina Dehaven, who became the 
wife of the writer afterwards. Since 
then these have all been removed by 
death, except brethren John Humberger 
and Christian Mast, the latter of whom 
is living in Osage county, Kansas. 

In the fall of 1871 two deacons were 
elected, Bro. Ben Horner and Bro. Mi- 
chael Flory. In 1872 Bro. Abraham Bear 
was elected to the deacon's office, and in 
the same year the writer was the first 
to be received into the church by bap- 
tism at this place. 

Elders present at the organization 
were Isaac Hershey and L. H. Flack. 
In 1872 Bro. Humberger was advanced 
to the second degree, and later ordained. 
In 1873 Michael Forney was elected to 
the ministry. In 1875 a love feast was

Thougltlessness. 

Thoughtlessness, not penuriousness, is 
the reason why so many husbands allow 
their wives to become old before their 
time in the worry and care of looking after 
their homes and children and, in the mean- 
time, neglecting their own health. They 
should be urged to make use of Dr. Peter's 
Blood Vitalizer. It rejuvenates both mind 
and body and makes life again worth living. 



The Jewel of Health. 

Pure, rich blood is the jewel of health. 
If our blood is " right," all the vital organs 
are nourished by it and we are well. If it 
is " wrong," the first thing we need is a 
blood tonic to make it right again. Dr. 
Peter's Blood Vitalizer is the proper rem- 
edy. You do not have to use bottle after 
bottle of the Blood Vitalizer to discover its 
merits. The first few doses will demon- 
strate its health-giving powers. 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



held at the home of Brother Bear, at 
which time an election was also held 
for a minister and two deacons. Bro. 
Abraham Bear was elected to the min- 
istry, and Bro. S. A. Sutter and the 
writer were elected as deacons. 

In 1876-77 Bro. S. A. Sutter and the 
writer made the annual visit, including 
five different counties and traveling 
about five hundred miles. The church 
gave us th£ privilege of doing some of 
this by correspondence. 

In 1877 J. M. Elliot and Humphrey 
Talhelm, two ministers in the second de- 
gree, S. H. Meuchley and Samuel Hough, 
two deacons, moved into this congrega- 
tion. About 1880 Bro. L. W. Fitzwater 
was elected to the ministry, and the 
same time the Saline Valley church was 
organized, which had formerly been a 
part of the Abilene church. In 1880 Eld- 
er John Forney moved into the congre- 
gation. The church was divided into 
three churches: the Chapman church, the 
Fairview church and the Abilene church. 
The Fairview church, having but few 
members, was soon restored to the Abi- 
lene church, of which it is still a part. 

In 1883 seven or eight of the members 
went off with the Old Order Brethren. 
Three of this number came back, and 
two of them died in that faith. 

In 1886 the Herington church was or- 
ganized, composed of a part of the Abi- 
lene church, which, a few years later, 
was disorganized and taken back into 
the Abilene church. In 1889 the church 
made several attempts to raise money to 
build a churchhouse, but could not de- 
cide on a location, and also failed to get 
enough money subscribed. 

In 1889 Bro. P. R. Wrightsman and 
wife, by consent of the church, got by 
subscription almost enough money to 
construct a house of worship. The 
house is 40x50 feet, having a basement 
under the entire house. In 1890 another 
house was built in the west end of the 
congregation, called the Holland church. 
This was 40x60 feet. We now have two 



churchhouses, with a membership of 
about 170 members, five elders, three 
ministers in the second degree and two 
in the first degree, and eight deacons, 
some being quite old and inactive; six 
appointments for preaching, with one 
Brethren Sunday school and two union 
Sunday schools, mostly conducted by the 
Brethren. 

Bro. Michael Forney died about 1885. 
Bro. Ben Horner moved to Illinois in 
1902. In 1878 Samuel Hough, a deacon, 
moved in and was elected to the min-r 
istry in 1879. Geo. Mower, a minister in 
the second degree, moved in in 1878 and 
in 1879 he was ordained to the full min- 
istry. He still lives here, but is a mem- 
ber of the Old Orders. 

In 1879 Geo. K. Sappington was elect- 
ed deacon; he was elected to the min- 
istry in 1881, in the Beaverdam church, 
Md., and to the eldership in 1891. Jesse 
Shick was elected deacon in 1879, and 
elected to the ministry in 1890; now liv- 
ing in Iowa. In 1884 Geo. S. Wine, an 
elder, moved in; and in 1882 D. J. Shaf- 
fer, a minister in the second degree, 
moved in. He is now dead. In 1884 J. 
D. Trostle, an elder, moved in and was 
a great help to the church; he had 
charge of the church until death. Dan- 
iel Hollinger, a minister in the second 
degree, moved among us. Although he 
was blind, still he preached some. He 
also died in this congregation. William 
Dohens, a deacon, came here in 1879; 
died about .1884. Nathan Nelson, a dea- 
con, came here in 1884, and later died 
here. Jonas Leedy, a deacon, came here 
in 1880; moved in and out several times. 
Samuel Larkin, a minister, came here in 
1883, died in 1902. J. T. Neher, a min- 
ister, came here in 1884, later went to 
California. Samuel Furrey, a minister, 
came about 1882; he is an elder and is 
still living here. Christian Hope came 
here in 1885 and died here. About the 
same year A. Shatto was elected deacon; 
in 1891 to the minis _ 
to North Dakot^B^GecTrge Manorr w£^

There Comes a Time. 

There comes a time in our lives when no 
amount of medical skill will be able to 
ward off the grim harvester Death, but that 
does not justify us in careless living, or 
in neglecting to help nature restore our 
bodily functions. Dr. Peter's Blood Vital- 
izer is the hand maid of nature in the work 
of restoration.

Bracing Up the Old Shanty. 

" Bracing up the old shanty," remarked 
an old farmer to his neighbor, as he took 
a dose of Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer, and 
there was more truth than humor in the 
remark. In old age, when the natural 
strength begins to fail, a mild, invigorating 
remedy becomes an actual necessity. The 
Blood Vitalizer is especially adapted for 
such cases.

THE NEW AND THE OLD. 



Time, strictly speaking, does not age, 
but is the measurement of existence or 
being by which age is determined. And 
according to this measuring things are 
called new and old. And as to things 
being new and old there is no definite- 
ness. This is determined proportionate- 
ly as to the length of the time they are 
supposed to exist or have a being. Som-e 
things are old after the existence of a 
year or less; other things are young aft- 
er being in existence thousands of years; 
so that the new and the old, as known 
by us, are determined by our customs 
and usages. 

We speak of the new country and the 
old country, the new States and the old 
ones, the nev/ houses and barns 
and the old ones, the new fields, 
fences, trees, orchards, etc., and the 
old ones, the new-born child and 
the old man or woman, and so 
on, all through the long list of 
beings and things that exist in the world 
as we know and understand them. And 
to the things new and old we gjttach im- 
portance and show our likes and dislikes 



according to our training, education and 
surroundings. 

Some of us are disposed to grumble 
and be out of tune with the present con- 
dition of things because, say we, they 
are not as they were in the good old 
times of yore, when we were not tackled 
and elbowed at every turn and corner 
for money, for papers, magazines, books, 
building churches, sending missionaries 
and a hundred other new things about 
which we knew nothing when we were 
bo3^s and girls, — in the good old times 
when the reading matter of the home 
consisted of a Bible, hymn book and fam- 
ily Almanac. Well, yes, those were the 
good old times of our fathers and moth- 
ers, and perhaps their abundance was 
proportionately as great with their possi- 
bilities as are ours now in these bad new 
times. And, furthermore, we must re- 
member that the times and things that 
we now look back upon as being old, to 
them were new; so that what now seems 
old to us was new to them. And while 
some things now may not be just what 
we would have them be, how many of us 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



would be pleased to step into their 
places as they occupied and filled them? 
Granting that the old times were as 
good as the possibilities would reason- 
ably allow, there are few of us indeed 
who would be pleased to exchange what 
we now have for what they had. 

There is a correspondence and fitness 
of things that belong to each other, and 
as time shifts them into the background 
they would lose their fitness were we to 
try to resurrect them and attach them to 
the new order of things. Let the past 
bury its dead; we have to do with the 
present and the living. Some things nat- 
urally live longer than others, so that 
as the new things come in, the cor- 
respondence is not lost, because they 
are yet new in their age, life and pur- 
pose — and in this way form a part of 
the new, or the present, instead of be'- 
ing relegated to the society of the old 
and the past. 

The wise man has said: "There is 
nothing new under the sun," and in his 
saying there is more truth than we, at 
first, suppose. All things material were 
from the beginning, though in different 
forms. A few years ago as we stood on 
the top of Egypt's most notable pyra- 
mid and thought of it being erected thou- 
sands of years before, the thought came 
to us, How very old, yes, very old in 



this pyramidal form. But, comparative- 
ly speaking, as a pyramid it was new, as' 
every particle of the material used 
in its construction was from the begin- 
ning, and therefore its real age dates 
from that time. 

But taking the terms in their more 
common acceptation, the subject, .the 
new and the old, is a very interesting 
one, and a comparison is justifiable. We 
have our new men and our old ones. It 
alwaj^s has been so; and it does us good 
to look at them as such. The young of 
to-day enjoy many advantages in the 
way of acquisitions and possibilities 
But the old have the advantage of practi- 
cal experiences which count greatly in 
their favor, so that the one largely com- 
pensates for the other. And by a happy 
blending of the two together we have the 
.secret of the real success in life. Let 
the young men do the pushing while 
the old men guide the boat. This ought 
to be true in our business life, and es- 
pecially true in the church life. The 
young cannot afford to despise the ex- 
perience of the aged; neither should the 
old refuse to consider the greater intel- 
lectual acquisition of the young. The 
new and the old must necessarily go , 
hand in hand, because the one is con- 
tinually growing into the other.

DISPENSARY WORK IN INDIA. 



BY O. H. YEREMAN, M. D. 



It is a known fact that the interest 
taken in a new or old field depends to a 
large extent on the amount of knowledge 
we possess of the place and its surround- 
ings, the work and its true condition. 
We all picture in our minds how things 
are, and very often we find our picture 
entirely different from the real one. To 
this end the following lines are written, 
that our friends may be able to form a 
correct opinion of conditions which are 



being reported from this field from time 
to time. 

Dahanu is a town of about 2,500 in- 
habitants. It spreads itself for several 
miles along the sea, like many another 
seaport town. Being only seventy-eight 
miles from Bombay, and the countyseat 
of this " taluka," many a government of- 
ficial " tents it " along the beach during 
March, April and May. Seven miles 
north along the coast is said to be the 



30 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



best beach on this side of India, and here 
the Parsees have selected the site for 
their sanitarium. 

The population of this vicinity is made 
up of numerous castes, as in most parts 
of India. The difference in external ap- 
pearance between the different classes 
often produces pictures of great contrast. 
From the Varle}^ of the hills and jungles 
who, excepting the few yards of cloth 
wrapped about his head and . the two- 
foot rag covering his loins, is absolutely 




In the Operating Room. 

naked, to the proud Musselman dressed 
in gaudy silks of bright red and green, 
there are, comparatively speaking, few 
grades but great contrasts. For in a 
country like this the poor are very poor, 
while the well-to-do are rich compared 
to their unfortunate neighbors. 

The natives are of medium size, lean 
and erect. They have gracefully curved 
features and strong, athletic bodies. But 
generations of excess in different vices 
have made them weak and limited their 
resistance to disease. 

The coiffure of the men is very pecu- 
liar. The hair is cut in all sorts of forms 
depending on the freaks of the barber 
and customer. Some have their head 
shaved half way back over the head. 
Others cut a strip of hair an inch wide 
running longitudinally across their head. 
But in all cases they allow a tuft of hair 



to grow long from the crown, looking 
much like the Chinaman's queue. 

There are many small towns and vil- 
lages around Dahanu. Mulyan is one of 
the most important of these. It is the 
railway station of Dahanu, and here you 
will find us living rather than at Dahanu, 
as you would suppose from our postal 
address. On account of our work being 
mainly among the villagers, the hill and 
the jungle people; and for the conveni- 
ence of railroad travel, Mulyan is decid- 
edly the best center for us. Here Bro. 
Ebey's live in a native house, and I occu- 
py a native shop for living as well as 
dispensary purposes. 

An Indian native hut is a quaint look- 
ing affair. Around here can be seen hun- 
dreds of these, built of bamboo and mud 
and covered with a liberal coat of straw 
and palm leaves. Sticks of wood are 
placed over these so as to keep them 
from being blown away. Almost invari- 
ably a vine of some kind is planted near 
the house, which in time spreads itself 
over the entire roof, giving the place an 
attractive appearance. The interior is 
often composed of one large room, with 
one end arranged for the cattle and poul- 
try, while the rest is occupied by the 
family, be it composed of two or ten 
members. The floor is mother earth 
plastered over with mud and cow dung. 
The kitchen utensils are of brass, copper 
and clay, most of them being of the lat- 
ter. The cookstove or " choola " is in 
the shape of a horseshoe, small, low and 
built of mud. Their Sapolio is ashes and 
their soap, lime, and general antiseptic, 
the dung of the sacred animal — the cow. 

The native is a simpleton in many 
w^ays. A week ago the mother of our 
assistant station-master came very near 
dying because of three heavy meals, all 
given within two hours while she was 
suffering with high fever. The result 
was that I had to work with her two 
hours in the middle of the night, and 
then barely saved her life. When giv- 
ing medicines to patients we have to be 



31 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



careful and repeat the directions three 
or four times, and even then not infre- 
quently they take an entire day's medi- 
cine at one dose. 

Getting definite information concern- 
ing symptoms is another great difficulty 
in the way. They are not close observ- 
ers, and unless I use my own judgment, 
I am likely to be misled by their de- 
scription. For example, " dumb " is a 
term with which they designate a gener- 
al condition of difficulty of breathing. 
But whether it is the result of cough, 
asthma, a loaded stomach pressing on the 
heart, or actual heart disease, it 
makes no difference, they simply ask 
for " dumb-non-duva " — medicine for 
" dumb." " Gant " is another general 
term. It may be a simple swelling, a 
large tumor, a stye or a rupture, it is all 
" gant." The Indian is in a hurry when 
it comes to getting doctored. He wants 
his cure performed on short order, and 
I sometimes think that even our mission- 
aries catch that spirit, forgetting that it 
requires time even under the improved 
surroundings of an American home to 
cure chronic diseases. But in spite of all 
these things we get some excellent cases 
and excellent results. In my judgm.ent 
our best field lies in the operative one; 
where within one week a person who has 



been blind for years, needing the assist- 
ance of some member of his family at 
every move, is made to see and help him- 
self. During the last two weeks I have 
performed two operations of this kind. 
The last one was on an old lady brought 
from a village twenty miles away. She 
had been totally blind for over three 
years, and her joy was boundless when 
she discovered that she could see after 
the operation. She is now lying on the 
mud floor of a room at the public inn, 
which I have engaged for her use. She 
says her body aches on account of the 
uneven floor on which she lies, but she 
is willing to suffer for eight days to re- 
cover her sight. Twice a day our native 
workers go to see her and instruct her 
in the way of life. We are developing 
rapidly in this operative line. Thirty- 
five operations have already been per- 
formed, and we hope that the time is not 
far off when we can have a hospital with 
its facilities to aid us in our work. 

September was the biggest month in 
the history of our dispensary. From 765 
patients in January to 1,521 in Septem- 
ber is fair progress for the short time. 
We pray the Lord of the harvest to give 
us wisdom, and enable us to gather these 
golden sheaves into his garner. 

Dahanu, India. 



THE POTTER'S WHEEL. 



BY A. W. VANIMAN. 



I lived in this world over forty-four 
years before I ever saw a potter's wheel, 
and the potter at work. 

The potter and his work is a favorite 
subject with the sacred writers. Think- 
ing there may be some of the Almanac 
readers equally as ignorant, or unfortu- 
nate as myself, I shall describe the proc- 
ess somewhat. 

I suppose the potter's wheel of to-day 
is the same as we read about in the 



Bible. It consists of a solid wooden 
wheel about three feet in diameter, fas- 
tened to an upright shaft a few inches 
from the floor. On the top of this shaft, 
at about three feet from the floor, is a 
small wheel about a foot in diameter. 
On this small horizontal wheel is where 
the potter does his work. He sits so 
that his feet and legs are above the 
large wheel, and with one foot he moves 
the wheel. The potter takes the lump of 



32 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



clay of such a size as he desires to use, 
lays it on the middle of the top of the 
small wheel. In a vessel at his side is 
found water, where he wets his hands, 
in order to make the clay work smoothly 
and easily. 

When one looks at the potter at his 
work, and sees hbvf simple and easy the 
process is, one is almost inclined to 
think, " I could do that too." The own- 
er of the wheel tells me that many per- 
sons have that idea, and desire to show 
how easily they could do the same. But 
they always find it quite another story. 
It requires about three years to learn 
the trade. Some of the thoughts that 
came to me while thinking on this sub- 
ject are as follows: 

1. The potter has full control of the 
clay, and can make any vessel he pleases. 
He has power over the clay to make a 
vessel to honor or dishonor. 

2. Whether a vessel is to honor, as 
men see it, is not of special importance; 
for both are of equal importance in the 
eyes of the maker. Are you seemingly 
an insignificant vessel among God's peo- 
ple? Your place is one that needs some 
person to fill it, and you are that one, 
and you are appreciated by the Great 
Potter the same as those who fill a more 
pretentious place. 

3. When I attempted to form a vessel 
I made a failure of it, and it was impos- 
sible for the potter to remedy the de- 
fect until he reduced the clay to its origi- 
nal formless mass. I stopped to ask my- 
self whether the Creator can reform the 
character that has been spoiled by the 
inexperienced or wicked dabbler. It was 
not the fault of the clay that I made a 
failure of my attempt. Is it possible that 
souls may be lost through no fault of 
their own? God knows: I do not. I 
only know that " God will do right and 
his judgments are righteous." 

4. When I had spoiled my work, the 
potter took the same lump of clay, and 
in a few moments' time, behold, a beau- 
tifully-formed vessel. That is what the 
love of God and the power of the Holy 



Ghost sometimes does, when an ill- 
shaped soul is brought under the re- 
quired influence, and is reformed by the 
power of the trained potter. 

5. After the vessels are formed on the 
wheel, they are dried. This is a process 
that must have its time. Should the ves- 
sels be set out into the hot sun at once, 
they would crack and be much injured, 
if not ruined. - But if dried slowly in the 
shade they remain in a perfect condi- 
tion. Moses, at forty years of age, was 
ready to be the deliverer of Israel; but 
the Lord set him in the shade forty 
years before he was fit to use, and then 
it was that Moses saw his weakness, and, 
as he supposed, unfitness. But now the 
Lord saw that he could use him. Thus 
the Lord even in this day may set a per- 
son in the shade, to be prepared for some 
work in the future. It is not always the 
man who comes to the front in his early 
years that holds his position and influ- 
ence. Sometimes he is like the potter's 
vessel that is dried in the hot sun; the 
strain is too great, and he may be greatly 
injured and even ruined. Had he gained 
his experience a little more in the shade, 
he might have escaped some of the mis- 
takes which he sees when it is too late. 

6. After the vessels are dried, they are 
burned. This is the finishing process; 
this is the supreme test. The one that 
fails here fails forever. Until the vessel 
is placed in the oven, it is possible to 
use the clay again if the vessel is spoiled 
or broken, but a potter's vessel, spoiled 
in burning, is a complete wreck. One 
can scarcely look upon a sadder lesson 
than a pile of broken crockery. A still 
sadder view is that of a human being, 
broken and spoiled in life's battle. In- 
stead of being prepared for greater use- 
fulness, by the trials of life, he could not 
bear the strain, and one looks upon a 
wasted and ruined life, fragments of what 
might have been useful and beautiful. 

This burning in the fire is necessary 
before a vessel can be of use. So the 
Lord knows that trials are necessary for 
us, in preparing us as vessels for the 
Master's use. To John the Revelator it 
was said, " He that overcometh shall re- 
ceive the crown of glory." Remember 
that all things work together for good 
to them that love God.

SIDE BY SIDE IN DEATH. 



Exquisitely beautiful is the effigy of 
Queen Victoria, now placed beside that 
of her husband on the royal tomb in the 
Mausoleum at Frogmore, England. It 
is the work of Baron Marochetti, who 



after the Queen's death, in 1901, her cas- 
ket was laid in it beside his, as she had 
desired. It is covered by the massive 
marble slab on which the effigies now lie 
side by side. For nearly forty years the 




Effigies of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert on their Tomb at Frogmore. 



was the Queen's favorite sculptor, and 
the designer of all the statues executed 
by her orders. It is remarkable, as are 
his other works, for its simplicity and fi- 
delity to nature. It represents Her Maj- 
esty in her earlier years, and was mod- 
eled before the death of the Prince Con- 
sort. The figure shows her in her royal 
robes, wearing a jeweled crown, and with 
the sceptre in her left hand. The ex- 
pression of the face is that of peaceful 
sleep, the features lulled in calm repose. 
The place for it has been empty until 
now, since the effigy of Prince Albert 
was put there. The erection of the 
mausoleum was begun soon after his 
death, in 1861, and his body was depos- 
ited there as soon as the building was 
completed. The sarcophagus occupies 
the entire width of the marble floor, and 



white figure of the Prince had been there, 
waiting its companion. It is now com- 
pleted by the addition of her own effigy, 
"according to the Queen's wish. On the 
walls of the building is the touching in-^ 
scription placed there by her orders: 
" Farewell, beloved. Here at last 
I will rest with thee. With thee, 
in Christ, will I rise again." Her pa- 
thetic resolve is now fulfilled. The ef- 
figies of the illustrious couple, so ardent- 
ly attached to one another in life, lie side 
by side, as do their bodies under the 
slab, and though a long interval elapsed 
between their deaths, it may now be said 
of them, as of the ancient king and his 
son: "Lovely and pleasant in their 
lives, and in their death they were 
not divided." — 2 Samuel 1 : 23. — Christian 
Herald.

MINISXEIRIAL LISX. 



Corrected up to and Including Dec. 5, 1904, 



For the convenience of the Gish Fund Department we have found it necessary to arrange the Ministe- 
rial List alphabetically instead of under States. 

Kept in our large fire-proof vaults is a systematically-arranged file, containing a card, 4x6 inches, for 
each minister in the Brotherhood. On each minister's card are his name and address. If he changes his 
address, the change is noted on his card. If he orders a book, as provided for by the Gish Fund, that is 
entered. When a minister dies, or is relieved of his office, his card is removed from the file. If a brother 
is elected to the ministry a new card, containing his name and address, is placed in the file. 

The following list is set up from these cards. Should any mistakes be discovered, write us so we can 
correct the card list. The corrections now made will appear in the Almanac list for 1905.

Buying by the Name 

When you go to buy shoes, soap, a spool of thread, or a 
piano, you consult the label and buy by the name. The same 
rule should be applied to the purchase of medicines. You 
probably know less about them than about any of the articles 
named ; you have to take more for granted. When you see 
the title, "Dr. Pctcr's Blood Vitalizcr," on a bottle of 
medicine, be satisfied ; it's your guarantee that it is standard. 
It stands for quality, like the *' sterling mark " on silver. It 
represents prestige earned by over a century of actual cures. 

Mr. W. F. Clawson, of Anderson, Ind., voices the senti- 
ment of many when he says : *' We have tried using other and 
cheaper (?) medicines than the Blood Vitalizcr, but find they 
do not give the satisfaction, neither can they do the work that 
Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer does." 

Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer is a natural remedy made 
from healing herbs, leaves and roots — nothing else. It is not a 
drugstore medicine, but is supplied direct from the laboratory to 
the people through local agents. It is one of the few medicines 
you can safely buy by the name. Prepared only by

MISSION BOARDS AND THEIR 
ORGANIZATION. 



In the following to make as complete a record 
as possible has been the end sought After two at- 
tempts the results are as shown herewith. A 
number of Boards made no report whatever and 
hence the organization goes in as it appeared in 
last year's Almanac. It has been thought use- 
ful to indicate the time when each one's term 
expires. It is hoped that next year all Boards 
will make a complete report.

THE INGLENOOK is an illustrated weekly magazine, printed at Elgin, 111. Its 
arrangement is unique, and is suited to all classes of people. Those of a literary turn will 
appreciate the first twelve pages, for they are filled each week with new, clean, bright, spark- 
ling matter, consisting of the best thoughts of authors of note as well as other able contrib- 
utors, upon |the live subjects of the day. THE EDITORIALS are written to meet the 
wants of the constituency in the line of current issues. For the busy people who do not 
have time to digest the voluminous dailies, we have two pages set apart for the CURRENT 
NEWS, boiled down so that the readers may keep in touch with the world and yet not re- 
quire so much of their time. For the lover of nature we reserve two pages of NATURE 
STUDY. No family magazine is complete without a HOME DEPARTMENT, so we 
have amply provided for our women folks. In order that the LITTLE PEOPLE may be- 
come readers and ardent lovers of good literature, we give them a page which is highly 
appreciated by them. To encourage Christian work we give space to CHRISTIAN 
WORKERS' AND READING CIRCLE WORK. For the curious we keep one page for 
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. Last but not least, a MISCELLANEOUS page is re- 
served. Subscription price, $1.00 per annum. 

The subscription list is growing rapidly, because the people are finding out that they 
can get a twenty-four page weekly for the regular price of a monthly. Write us for sam- 
ple copy, testimonials; and our special inducements to new subscribers.

THE GOSPEL MESSENGER 



A weekly religious journal, 16 large pages, is published in the interest of the 
Brethren church, and is the only church paper published by the authority of the Con- 
ference. Price, $1.50 per annum. 

It most earnestly pleads for a return to the apostolic order of worship and prac- 
tice. 

It holds that the Bible is a divinely-inspired book, and recognizes the New Testa- 
ment as the only infallible rule of faith and practice for the people of God. 

It also holds to the doctrine of the Trinity; teaches future rewards and punish- 
ment, and emphasizes the importance of a pure, holy and upright life before God and 
man. 

It maintains that only those who remain faithful until death have the promise of 
eternal life; 

That Faith, Repentance and Baptism are conditions of pardon, and hence for the 
remission of sins; 

That Trine Immersion or dipping the candidate three times face-forward is Chris- 
tian Baptism; 

That Feet- Washing, as taught in John 13, is a divine command to be observed in the 
church; 

That the Lord's Supper is a meal, and, in connection with the Communion, should 
be taken in the evening, or after the close of the day; 

That the Salutation of the Holy Kiss, or Kiss of Charity, is binding upon the fol- 
lowers of Christ; 

That War and Retaliation are contrary to the spirit and self-denying principles of 
the religion of Jesus Christ; 

That a Nonconformity to the world in daily walk, dress, customs and conversation 
is essential to true holiness and Christian piety. 

It maintains that in public worship, or religious exercises. Christians should ap- 
pear as directed in 1 Cor. 11: 4, 5. 

It also advocates the Scriptural duty of Anointing the sick with oil in the name 
of the Lord. 

In short, it is a vindicator of all that Christ and the Apostles have enjoined upon 
us, and aims, amid the conflicting theories and discords of modern Christendom, to 
point out ground that all must concede to be infallibly safe. 

The first page of the Messenger contains well-rounded-up news from most parts 
of the world. This page is highly prized by all the readers of the paper. 

Several pages are filled with good essays from the best writers in the Broth- 
erhood. Here nearly every phase of the Christian religion is considered. 

Three pages each week are filled with editorials, and a wide range of subjects is 
discussed from week to week. 

The Home and Family, Prayer Meeting, Christian Workers' and Missionary De- 
partments have each their special merit. 

The paper contains special news from every part of the Brotherhood, including re- 
ports from Denmark, Sweden, France, Switzerland and India. 

The General Missionary financial report is to be published every month. This will 
prove interesting to many. 

One of the editors, Bro. D. L. Miller, is on a trip around the world and contrib- 
utes regularly for the columns of the Messenger. We also publish interesting cor- 
respondence from the Bible Lands. 

The contents of the paper are clean, well prepared and make pure, entertaining 
and most instructive reading. 

We shall be pleased to send sample copies to those wishing to know more about 
the paper. 

If you want a journal that contends earnestly for the good old Gospel ways, do 
not fail to secure the Gospel Messenger.
